Church Liaison Officer, Saltbox
In 1983, five Methodist lay preachers from Stoke-on-Trent had a dream of setting up a local charity that would work ecumenically to support the work and mission of local churches and Christians working in different ministries. Since those early days, Saltbox has become an established part of the faith sector locally, regionally and nationally. In 2015, Saltbox took a step of faith to employ a Church Liaison Officer to develop this spiritual engagement and support. Until now, this post has been funded out of reserves but, having established the continuing need for such a collaborative role. Saltbox is seeking grant funding in order to support the Church Liaison Officer project, enabling us to continue carrying out the spiritual engagement work which is so valued and highly regarded both locally and nationally, alike.
